Our Photo Service for You

A picture says more than a thousand words...

Here at Lion Chess, we work hard to provide you with photographs of our products to the highest standards. And we never stand still, priding ourselves of our achievements. The moment we stepped up the quality on our product photos, we work already on the next level, to give you photographs of ever increasing clarity. After all you want to know what you are buying. Our approach resembles the Far East philosophy: The journey is the reward! And so we never stop learning...

Of course, good pictures require excellent equipment and so we periodically invest in high-quality photographic equipment. You didn't come to our site to see holiday selfies from your friends, taken from the rather poor cameras of a smartphone or tablet. Instead, you can expect sharp pictures of your admired chess pieces and perhaps adding that little artistic touch of intentional blur to make the knight stand out from the crowd.

All of our product photography is done in-house, giving us full control of each take. What does this mean for your? Because we take photographs in our own hands, we don't have high expenses associated with hiring a professional photographer and therefore keeping prices lower for you. It also gives us great flexibility in matching sets with boards and we can also process any new additions to our ever increasing product choices quickly.

Don't know whether the Taj Chess Pieces will blend well with a Wenge board? Is a 64mm board too big for the Zagreb 4" pieces? There are formulas and rule of thumbs in place to tell you what is the "correct" size, but personal taste differs and there is no substitute of a picture, showing you how particular chess pieces look on a given board. Not sure what works and what not? Get in touch with us and we can take your requested photographs, helping you to make an informed buying decision and taking the guesswork out for you.

To request some custom photographs or inquiry about anything else, please call us on 0800 999 2204 (free from a UK landline) or write us an e-mail on . We love to shoot for you!
